Plenty of bream in the River!

With the weather a little inclement over last weekend a lot of anglers opted to stay home and do some much need maintenance on their gear. With the wind, rain and swell all forecast to improve through the week angler will be out in force again.
For those that braved the weather or fished earlier in the week the Maroochy River was again fishing well, good bream are in numbers and some larger sized fish have been taken down towards the river mouth and the deeper sections of black banks, small pilchards and whitebait have been the go to bait as well as mullet strip baits. For the lure angler’s smaller soft plastic like the Keitech Easy Shinner in the 2and 3 inch size have been really firing. Small hard body lures are also going well with the Eco Gear CX35 a favourite of mine. Good tailor are still being reported from the river with the run in tide and the early morning the prime time. Fast moving slugs and plastics have been the way to go for the lure anglers while the good old pilchard has done most of the damager for the bait boys. Flatties are also on the chew with some cracker coming from the lower reaches around Goat Island. The jewies are a little quiet but if we do not get two much rain the holes up past Coolum Creek will be worth a go.
Offshore has been a little slow with the wind making things a little uncomfortable, for those in the larger craft that did make the run outside some good fish have been on offer, the pelagics still seem to be around with some Spotted and spanish mackerel taking a liking to pilchard and yakka floaters. Scattered tuna are also on offer but are very flighty and if you come across a school you tend to only get one or two casts at them. Speaking of slugs, the new Chilli Pack slugs from Zerek are perfect for the job as they resemble the rain bait that they are feeding on and because they are tungsten you get much better cast weight. On the bottom the closer reefs have also been producing some pan sized fish like snapper, sweetlip and mori cod. The outer reefs have seen larger snapper, pearl perch and some stonker cobia.
On the beach the swell was right up there over the weekend making it difficult to get a bait to the bottom. Before the swell we saw some nice whiting coming from the Mudjimba area with freshly puller worms the perfect baits. Tailor are still around with the rocks and headlands the best places to head.
